Then hop to the end,” she instructed. Tiny and Don each had a turn. “Buddy’s next,” said
Shiny. “Buddy?” But Buddy wasn’t paying attention. He was chewing on his hopscotch stick. Buddy bit down hard on the stick. “Huh? My tooth came out!” he yelled. “One minute it was in my mouth—and now it’s out!” Everyone rushed over to see. “Why did my tooth fall out?” Buddy asked. “You smile too much, and your teeth are tired out,” Shiny suggested. “That doesn’t sound right,” said Tiny.

Do we have to eat it?” Mrs. Pteranodon said that she and Tiny weren’t hungry and that they preferred fish, anyway. They watched as the T. rexes ate happily–and noisily!
was getting ready to play Dinosaur Hopscotch again. This time, Buddy chewed on a leaf. “Why are you eating a plant?” Tiny asked. “You’re a carnivore, silly!” “Mom said it’s a leaf called mint. It’s supposed to make your breath smell better,” Buddy said. Just then, Buddy remembered the grown-up T. rex tooth he had found. He showed it to Don and Shiny. “Wow!
